Business Analytics

Business Analytics can help evaluate complex situations, consider all available options, predict outcomes, and present critical risks for business decisionmakers by employing the latest tools, models, and techniques. Harnessing the power of mathematical models, Business Analytics uses advanced tools and technologies to help each organization make the most of its data. The methods and models of analytics draw from disciplines including statistics, operations research, computer science, information systems, and others. Business  Analytics continues to be among the fastest-growing areas in business education in the United States.  Undergraduate students at the School of Business may pursue a Bachelor of Science in Business Analytics or a Bachelor of Science in Business with a concentration in Business Analytics. Students outside of the School of Business may pursue Business Analytics as a second major or as a minor.
